Evaluation Module for LIDAR Laser Drivers

Evaluation Module for LIDAR Laser Drivers

Texas Instruments’ LMG1020EVM-006 evaluation module (EVM) is a small, easy-to-use power stage for LIDAR laser drivers. This EVM includes an integrated resistive load (laser not included) and takes a short-pulse input that can either be buffered (and shortened further) or passed directly to the power stage. The board can demonstrate nanosecond laser pulses (>50A) for high-resolution LIDAR and ToF systems, as well as exhibit an extremely short propagation delay of 2.5ns (typical) to 4.5ns (maximum).
